... having a lift tops it off :)

If you work on your own bike it's worth investing in one, it makes things so much easier. No more constant bending down. Maintenance is a breeze. I've got the wheels out to get some SuperCorsa's fitted for my upcoming track day.

I had to make a new tool to get the front axle out. A 24mm nut (ex swingarm pivot nut off my old '89 GSXR750) welded to an old sparkplug spanner. I chose the plug spanner because I can slip a 3/4" socket on the end and use my breaker bar or air gun to get it loose, then use my normal 3/8" drive set to undo it / install it.

Ive been shopping a little for a lift. Want a larger capacity compressor first. 90 gal 2 cyl with a minium output of [email protected] would be nice. I have a devilbiss 25 gal 1 cyl with a [email protected] now and its working itself to death with the sanders im wanting to use.

Ha... I won't be impressed until you have half the bike supported by a bottle jack. :laugh

Best tool EVER! (the lift, not the bottle jack).

That's cool... if the garage is built high enough.

Is that one of those ones which go regularly on Ebay Steve???
Possibly, it's a cheapy. Waspo posted up one day that a guy down here had excess stock, I was in my car 1/2 hour later to go pick one up. It was the weekend AFTER I did the valve clearance on the TL, I was still stooped over :banghead

Pre-lift days. (Trolley jack instead of a bottle jack Bern :))

Agreed. wife bought me a Handy lift about 5 years ago....it's one tool I would never be w/o now. Doubles as a parking spot for bike not being ridden as well.
